Friends Down the Aisle

by James Zealy

Individuals seek a common ground,
Testing the limits of passion,
Realizing the fire,
Dies as quickly as it began,
Hope and questions battle inside,
Competing for a direction,
Soon to be made clear,
A friend touches Places not tapped,
Sparking a desire, craved but depressed,
Teasing the hopes in times of need,
Perhaps the friend is the one?,
That calms the fear, that lends the comfort,
Someone to talk to when times are unsettled,
Someone to hold and caress when they are not,
One who can transcend the frailties of age,
Lead the heart past life’s joys and troubles,
The test is yet to come,
The decision is made,
Preparations begin in earnest,
For friends to walk down the aisle.


Author's Note: Written about two years ago for a friends daughter. Her husband to be was not the great romantic, but whenever she needed a shoulder to cry on, he was there. Eventually it became apparent that they really needed each other. It's interesting, the portrayal of romance places so much glamour and expectation, that sometimes it is impossible to see what is real.
